    It's not about power, it's about what's enabled and supported in the drivers. Quadro cards (except at the very high end) are actually pretty pathetic cards. Plenty of industrial 3d software doesn't...

    FC can do so some strange shit for sure, but the posting system is pretty robust. Things suddenly missing out of the posted code with no external influence is pretty suspicious.

    How are you...

    Firstly, be very careful with everything I've written below. Remember that I am not familiar with your machine and am making assumptions based on how my machine works.

    I don't think he does want that, but seriously, who cares if someone wants a "bootleg" copy of ancient history software from a long defunct company??

    I have been trying to find a copy of Bravo...

    Bear in mind also, the original lego ball sockets depend on the elastic deformation of the plastic to push the ball into the socket and have it retained there. That won't work in aluminium.

    You'll need to show us the whole 9014 program, but immediately from that picture I can see that you need to specify at least S, W, and F arguments when you call G184.
  7. In that case it's likely that you're using the...

    In that case it's likely that you're using the wrong arguments in your G184. On my doosan, they are completely different to G84. Assuming you don't have any documentation explaining it's use, you...

    just remove m29, shouldn't need to do anything else

    There is a good chance that your leadwell is configured the same as my doosan which is also a 18i-tb.

    The clue is that you have a pair of m-codes, M65 and M66, that enable and disable PMC axis...

    For those materials, drills like the 880 at al. are not a good choice anyway.

    My current go to for soft materials and smaller holes is Tungaloy TungDrillTwisted (TDX series). Single lozenge shaped...

    In case anyone else ends up here with the same question, the machine was set to "Workpiece Coordinate System", when it was required to be in "Table Coordinate System".

    G43.4 on NTX2500 CELOS

    We have a new NTX2500 with Celos/Fanuc 31iB5, I am programming with Featurecam and we have a post supplied by Autodesk.

    I am going through it proving the post out, and so far it seems solid, just...

    How do they handle the insert gap/overlap at the centre?
  14. All the best drills I've used use specific...

    All the best drills I've used use specific inserts for centre and peripheral. All the worst ones I've used don't. There is of course some crossover in the middle.

    Very worst offender that I have...

    Going to have to admit defeat on this one - I have no idea what you're talking about!



    I cannot counter this claim directly, because it was simply too long ago and I just can't remember the...

    I was going to laugh it off and agree with you, but after a little bit of introspection I can honestly say that it's truly only windows that triggers apoplexy in me.

    Frequently on Linux I will...

    We had some steel from a scandinavian forge (fully traceable) fail mpi recently due to laminations.

    It happens.

    And again, real world usage of the technology renders your arguments somewhat academic. People do want to take thousands of 4k videos and 8k photographs, and they do often need to use current...

    Strange, most tapatalkers get assigned to the Aland Islands :D
  20. Where does the term "U-Drill" come from?

    Here in the UK it is the norm to call insert drills U-Drills.

    Specifically insert drills, not exchangeable head drills or spade drills.

    I've noticed that the term is rarely ever used on here,...

    I think he was just thrown by the fact that you've used a different username and the location shows as Afghanistan.

    Does sound like you're speaking Norwegian in the video though ;)

    Well. :)

    I don't particularly disagree with you on any of the more philosophical points, but actually having to use these systems to do things requires a degree of pragmatism to be maintained...

    The T2 chip has nothing to do with the internal drives. You can't swap the internal drive on the latest MacBooks because they are not a physically independent part - the flash memory is soldered...

    To the best of my knowledge, there is practically no losses over thunderbolt 3 compared to a four lane pci-e 3.0 slot.

    Thunderbolt basically is an external interface to pci-e. Graphics cards...

    thunderbolt 3 m.2 nvme enclosures are freely available, and much faster than usb type c.

    Effectively the same bandwidth as a standard m.2 slot, as thunderbolt 3 and m.2 both occupy 4 pci-e lanes.
